Drop-In Mind/Body Offerings

  • Morning Yoga
    • Vinyasa Flow: This dynamic vinyasa flow yoga class focuses on linking movement with the breath to enliven and center the mind, body, and spirit. This fluid practice cultivates strength, balance, and flexibility to address imbalances, relieve tension, and help improve overall physical well being. With an emphasis on mindfulness, students will also develop a keener inward focus and strive toward a more integrated self. Although this flow class is vigorous in nature, attention to alignment, breathing, and quieting of the mind ensures an intelligent and healing practice. Students should be prepared to move and sweat, but are encouraged to work within themselves and honor their limits.

Specific breath practices (pranayama) and continued awareness and exploration of this ‘prana’ will lead to a deeper awareness within each pose and overall balancing of the body’s energy. Other facets beyond the physical (mental clarity, focus, imagery, and meditation) are integrated into the practice.

Please note that this class is not a gentle or restorative yoga class. Anyone and everyone is welcome. The only thing you need to bring with you to class is your yoga mat and a willingness to push yourself both physically and mentally.
